PROJECT DETAILS:

SOCOTEC provided benefit to its client in this arbitration through its extensive review and analysis of the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the property.

SOCOTEC’s vehicle circulation study further validated the applicable traffic design, construction, and regulatory standards that we referenced in our analysis. SOCOTEC’s sitework investigation, research, and analysis provided counsel with a unique tactical advantage and quickly and unilaterally discredited the plaintiff’s allegations. SOCOTEC’s conclusion was clear, logical, and defensible; the incident could not have happened the way the adverse party had claimed.

SOCOTEC was able to substantiate its professional opinion that the Owner held no responsibility for the incident, and that all damages and injuries were due to the actions of the drivers of the two vehicles. The critical fact of this matter was that our client’s actions or inactions did not contribute to the accident, the vehicle damage, or the personal injuries. SOCOTEC’s well rounded design and construction expertise was instrumental in building a viable defense of its client because its opinions were wholistic in scope and thoroughly substantiated by technical references and applicable standards for design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
